JOHNNY HORTON —NORTH TO ALASKA AND OTHER HITS (Jasmine) 2-CDS

 

www.jasmine-records.co.uk

 

Here we have another country star that tragically died before his time. Like Patsy Cline and Hank Williams and you can also add Buddy Holly, Gram Parsons to the list) he was just hitting his stride when his life was taken in a fatal car crash in 1960.

 

As a budding performer Horton was actually taken under the wing of Hank when they were both playing on Shreveport's…

PATSY CLINE —JUST OUT OF REACH (Jasmine) 2cds

www.jasmine-records.co.uk 

Two cds and 56 tracks no less come in this package of material by the late, never to be forgotten Patsy Cline. Made up of two albums featured in their entirety (Patsy Cline – 1957 and Showcase – 1962) plus a feast of singles that include such classics as ‘Crazy Dreams’, ‘Stop The World’, her stunning take of ‘Lovesick Blues’ and the song that swept me away (and still does) the first time I heard it. I am talking…

O’BRIEN PARTY OF 7 —REINCARNATION (The Songs Of Roger Miller) (Howdy Skies)

www.timobrien.net/obrienpartyof7 

www.mollieobrien.com 

Here is a tribute record of a difference. One thing, it is a family affair as the families of Tim O’Brien and his sister, Mollie who are no strangers of sharing a recording studio. Since they have made three duet albums together and long…

TUPELO —DIRTY MONEY (IRL / Crashed Records)

www.tupelo.ie 

Dublin-based, Tupelo is an exciting new combo who apply the energy of the Old Crow Medicine Show to their music. As a rich head swirling mix of guitars, 5-string banjo, double bass, mandolin, bodhran, piano, percussion, sax and fiddle aid the lead vocals of James Cramer (who writes all the tunes) in splendid fashion. Since I am a huge fan of the Old Crows, Tupelo is a…

MEL TILLIS —STOMP THEM GRAPES / SAWMILL .. Plus (Raven)

 

www.ravenrecords.com.au

 

Two 1970s albums plus five additional cuts, two of which are duets with Sherry Bryce make up another bumper package released by the Australian reissue label Raven.

Tillis was one of country music’s biggest sellers during the 1970s and though he never made much of an impression outside the States the Florida-born act who is also the father of Pam Tillis was a top performer. A big name…

LERA LYNN —HAVE YOU MET LERA LYNN? (FREEWORLD / FLOATING WORLD)

Hearing the voice of Lera Lynn on the album was both a first and a delightful experience. All too many new fledgling acts are built up as being the best since sliced bread but in reality they are at best, average. Sadly more often than not I would go a step further and offer forgettable. Yet as already mentioned that wasn’t the case with Lera Lynn. Not only did one or two songs catch my attention…

KIMBERLEY MURRAY, BOB MANNING —ONE NIGHT ONLY! (Bourbon Haze Records / Heart Of Texas Records)

 

www.nashville-west.com

 

Boy, what a treat this is. Two traditional country performers who just happen to be man and wife sharing one record. Who rekindle the art of duet performances better than most of the originals. Fans of older country music will feel they have died and passed through St. Peter’s Gates once they hear the opening bars of this album and be like Oliver when it is finished hunger for…

WILLIE NELSON —HEROES (Sony Music)

 

www.legacyrecordings.com

 

On placing this, the latest from the Texas Outlaw on my player I hadn’t anticipated a great deal other than some interesting music, singing by Willie in his own inimitable style and that was about it! Boy, was I soon to be proved wrong because all the Willie Nelson magic of old was present. I am talking Red-Headed Stranger (1975) standard, his song ‘Roll Me Up’ isn’t…

JERRY JEFF WALKER —WALKER’S COLLECTIBLES & RIDIN’ HIGH…., PLUS (Raven)

 

www.ravenrecords.au.com 

Ramblin’ Jerry Jeff Walker was, is a one-off and there was a spell when few could hold a candle to him back in the 1970s. If he wasn’t the finest barroom, wild and free country music act he was awfully…

Two cds of the nineties in one fabulous package from, West Coast gal Heather Myles make for good country (music) listening. Myles was like a breath of fresh air when she breezed onto the scene in 1992 with her debut album, Just Like Old Times and then three years later with Untamed.…

Charlie McCoy has played on more recording sessions than most any other. For he has worked with everyone from Johnny Cash to Elvis Presley, Bob Dylan by way of all your country greats since 1960 who in 2009 joined his hero, Hank Williams in the Country Music Hall Of Fame. Viewers of the BBC’s 1970s Old Grey Whistle Test will no doubt be familiar…

TOMMY WOMACK —NOW WHAT! (Cedar Creek Music)

Genial talents, real ones are few and far between. People tend to have to sweat buckets to even come near seeing the taillights of Tommy Womack as he speeds into the distance. True, he has had a few wrecks and…
